Posted on: November 17th, 2022 by

Situated at the base of the iconic Hermits Peak, the adobe hacienda compound frames a spectacular backdrop. The Sapello River runs for 2 miles through the property, providing habitat for brown trout and water for the abundant wildlife including elk, mule deer, and black bears. An acequia supplies irrigation for 103 acres of fertile farmland. Four miles of the Rito Colorado, Deer Creek, and Rito Chavez meander through the ranch.

Originally purchased by Richard Pritzlaff in 1935, with subsequent additional purchases, the ranch was the headquarters of Mr. Pritzlaffs world-renowned Arabian horse breeding program and his extensive art collection. The ranch was often a gathering place for area socialites and artists, including Georgia OKeefe. The walls of the 1300 square-foot bunkhouse are adorned with spectacular murals painted in the 1940s by the famous native American artist Ma Pe Wi and meticulously restored in 2008.

The Eason Ranch

Posted on: November 4th, 2022 by

The Eason Ranch is a turn-key offering of 16 deeded sections (10,240 acres) plus one section of State lease (640 acres). Gently rolling hills characterize the topography of this grazing operation carrying 163 cow/calf pairs and ten bulls. The views are big and pretty, with purple mountains in the distance.

The seller runs trophy antelope hunts (pronghorn), helping an average of seven hunters harvest big bucks each year. Most of the bucks taken are 75-inches and over, some approaching an 80-inch Boone & Crocket Score. Hunters are fed and housed on the ranch and pay $3,000 to $4,000 per tag for 3-day hunts. Mule deer, elk, and oryx round out the big game animals that frequent this high-plains ranch (6,300 feet), but the current owner does not focus on hunting them.

Located 6 miles east of Claunch, the headquarters (south parcel) has a brick, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, plus a 30-foot x 60-foot metal shop. There is a large hay shed, an older wooden horse barn with six stalls, and a tack room. A big set of working pens and scales sit near the hay shed. One well (500 feet) and two storage tanks feed multiple drinkers in roughly six different pastures and two traps. These ten sections are in New Mexico Game Unit 18 (rifle friendly).

The ranchs second piece (north parcel) is four miles north of Claunch and has six deeded sections along with the State Lease land. There is also one well here (900 feet) and two storage tanks feeding multiple drinkers in multiple pastures on this parcel. Both wells on the ranch have new pumps. These seven sections are in New Mexico Game Unit 38.

New Mexico property taxes are low, and ag exemptions bring them down lower. The seller believes they have all the mineral rights and will convey what they have. The ranch is enrolled in the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), which provided $58,000 in the recent year. As of mid-August, five inches of rain had fallen on the ranch, and the range is in excellent condition. The sellers have a local cattle partner running the grazing operation who owns one-third of the livestock. The owners two-thirds of the cattle are included in the asking price.
